first time i am going to build a dished wheel,
my PUCH came with a gipimme rear hub, and a regina 6 speed, rear spacing was 126mm
I decided to restore the correct parts-
campy record low flange,
NOS mavic argent 10 rims,
I found for sale a NOS Marchisio IKO SPORT 7 speed alloy freewheel and thought this would be nice to loose some 200g.
the chain just touches the dropouts and also the small plastic adjuster that sticks out of the dropout,
I swapped axle spacers and now I got 128.5mm, the hub seems to just slide in perfectly, and i have a nice 2-3mm gap between the frame and the chain.
my flange distance: left. 36.75 mm rt. 20.25 mm
now the question is there a point where the right is just too small to build a good wheel? should I reduce the distance by a millimeter, will it make much difference
